View Full Version : squeeking teins?
10-24-2004, 02:09 PM
There is a slight squeeking comming from somewhere in my suspension. Its only on highways going at speed with slight bumps in the road as the suspension travels up and down. It might be the sway bushings but i doubt it. (i think that needs lithium greese) What can i put on the rods of the suspension.

I have the same problems with my Tein SS. It's my rear passenger side. it's different from the chasis squeaks and come only when I go through bumps. Any solutions?

I have the same squeeks from the same area but with my stock shocks. I thought it was because they were blown, but I'll try lubing the hell outta the strut assembly tonight and let you know if that helped.
I will also torque down some of the bolts down there that I had to take off when I installed the springs. Maybe they came loose?

no its not the endlinks. Its a more of a rubber kind of squeek. I just want to know what types of lube i can use on the strut rods. (that and try lithium grease the sway bushings)

I started having the squeeks couple days ago, but I havent driven my car in a week since i was in vegas. And yeah mines more like a rubber squeek rather than a metal squeek. Couple months ago, my passenger side endlink came disconnected from the sway bar & was just hanging. That sound didnt make a squeek though, more like metal bending (which it probably was).
Ill probably take some wd-40 to the endlinks area now though.
